Associate Professor Peter Vuillermin is a general paediatrician with an interest in the early life origins of immune related disorders in the modern environment. Peter is co-lead investigator on the Barwon Infant Study, which is a population-derived Australian birth cohort study (n=1074) incorporating longitudinal assembly of uniquely detailed array of biological samples in combination with environmental and clinical data. He has a particular interest in the relationship between the modern environment and diet, the microbiome and its metabolites, and the early life origins of immune dysregulation, allergic disease and asthma.
